Glasco Miles, 24, was riding a bicycle Aug. 21 when he pulled out a handgun and fired a shot toward officers who were investigating him in connection with a robbery, authorities said.

Police were in the area of Edsel and Omaha streets in Detroit at 1:50 p.m. when Miles rode past and fired a shot before fleeing on foot, police said.

In the robbery case, Miles is accused of targeting a 25-year-old Redford woman at a business in the 2600 block of South Schaefer Street in Detroit, officials said.
